Pastor Scott Lively is Being Sued by Gay Activists Based on International Law for Crimes Against Humanity
What is happening to Pastor Scott Lively is not only unbelievable, but unconscionable!
For those who are not aware, Pastor Scott Lively has spoken out against homosexuality. He has that right under the Constitution and because he is a pastor who believes in the inspiration of Scripture, he preaches all of it, not just what some say are the politically correct portions of the Bible.
Because of this, Lively has come under tremendous fire for his views and his free speech. By the way, free speech is really verboten under the terms of cultural Marxism (aka political correctness). You’re only allowed to say things that those on the left agree with and anything else is – as Jesse Jackson would say – “frowned upon.”
Because Pastor Lively has visited Africa and spoken to groups there with his message about homosexuality, the homosexual community in Massachusetts hasn’t taken kindly to that action. In fact, he’s being sued by “a Soros-backed pro-homosexual ‘civil rights’ organization, Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) based in New York.” It’s ironic how many of these leftist organizations have patriot-sounding names, isn’t it? The group has just received the go-ahead from the court allowing them to “move forward and sue Pastor Scott Lively of Springfield, Mass. for allegedly committing international ‘crimes against humanity’.”
The suit stems from Pastor Lively’s conferences in Uganda. There have been many steps in this process and back in January, “Federal Judge Michael A. Ponsor even told the CCR lawyer that he is ‘struggling to see actionable behavior’ in anything Lively did or said, and that he can’t see that any of Lively’s conduct that amounts to ‘persecution’ or ‘conspiracy’.” Yet, in spite of this, this same federal judge recently moved to accept “all of the points raised by the Soros-backed plaintiffs and denies all of the points raised by Lively’s lawyers. In addition, Ponsor excoriates Pastor Lively’s ‘offensive conduct’ relating to his pro-family activity and his ‘distasteful’ use of the First Amendment.”
One can only wonder how that happens. I cannot imagine this happening if Lively lived in a “red” state. What caused the judge to go from struggling to see “actionable behavior” to ultimately accepting all the points presented by those who are suing? We don’t know, though we can guess. Ultimately, what this means is that Pastor Scott Lively is no longer protected by the First Amendment and is being sued in a federal court based on international law. This is what the elite want, by the way. They want international law to trump national law. That’s why The Hague exists.
Yet, what is incredible is that protestors who arrived to the courthouse held nothing back with their signs, their parodies of Christianity, their filthy language – all of it was perfectly acceptable. “Local homosexual groups organized about 80 of their activists to pack the courtroom inside. But they also were in force outside the main entrance to harangue, insult, and harass Lively’s supporters while ‘protesting’ Lively’s alleged actions. They were chanting, screaming, accusing Pastor Lively of being a murderer, and even confronting other individuals.”
Now what happens? Since the plaintiffs have been given the go-ahead from the judge to proceed with their lawsuit, the next phase is what is called the “discovery” phase. “Basically, the plaintiffs will demand to see tons of Lively’s emails, records, and other material — largely a fishing expedition, it would appear, to find anything that might strengthen their case.”
Something is seriously evil about things like this. Satan is alive and well. On one hand, Lively (as well as the protestors outside the courthouse and outside his coffee shop) have the right of freedom of speech. In this case, it is being used against Lively because of the things he preached while out of the country. It is argued that because he said those things outside America, he was not protected by the First Amendment during that time and that’s when – they argue – international law kicks in.
Since before Prop 8 became law in California, we were warned that gay activists would never stop fighting for their cause and we have seen an increase in attacks since that time. Ultimately, they do not want anyone even uttering the phrase that homosexuality is wrong. They don’t want to hear it and they would prefer people don’t even think it.
In the case of Pastor Scott Lively, this has been going on for some time and it is clear that powerful forces are behind all of it. The goal is shut down freedom of speech. The goal is to make Christians a silent minority. The goal as Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci said, is to shut down and destroy Christianity. Gramsci “argued that Marx’s ‘Worker’s Paradise’ could not be realized as long as Christian culture had a hold on the masses. For Gramsci, the number one enemy was the Roman Catholic Church, not capitalism.”
This is what is behind today’s cultural Marxist movement, normally seen in political correctness. The goal is to destroy all dissent (that is based on biblical or traditional values) and that can only be accomplished by destroying the Church, where the moral fiber of the culture sits. Once the Church is destroyed, the new world order can actively and aggressively set itself up.
That’s ultimately what’s behind this lawsuit against Lively. Between gays and Muslims, the First Amendment is being attacked and in the final analysis, will likely fall. However, we can slow the process and even reject that outcome when/if it happens. Get involved! Doing nothing is the same as waving the white flag.
